White House Down stars Channing Tatum as a man applying for a job as a Secret Service Agent who gets denied for the position. After that denial, he takes his daughter to the White House for a tour on the same day it comes under attack, and with that he gets a chance to prove himself by protecting the President.
Jamie Foxx also joins the cast as the President of the United States. The movie itself is painted as a fairly dark, suspense-filled thriller with the promise of a lot of explosions, violence and Channing Tatum’s rippling muscles. The new promo for the Roland Emmeric-directed film presents it with a much different tone: A light film, with an almost buddy-buddy feel between Tatum’s would-be Secret Service agent and President Jamie Foxx.
Minus the aliens, however, White House Down is looking like an off-brain batch of fun for those interested in a good time. You can check out the trailer for yourself below:
